It's no secret I love beer.  Here's a list of some of my favorites, in no particular order.

There are many, many obscure brews I enjoy, but because others might not know them, I focused on 25 more well-known beers.

So what bottle gets your pick?

So those of us who don't like beer are pretty much irrelevant. LOL

Now why is there no ginger beer option? or root for that matter? Tongue

Hmm - the Sierra Nevada is good, Shiner Bock, Guinness of course - I'll drink Yuengling when I want to be cheap (it's a local beer here so available pretty much anywhere you go).  Stella is alright as well.

You have some breweries I really like but didn't list my favorite beer from them (i.e. I prefer Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale to their Porter).

And it's about time!

Guiness Draught for me, although it's technically not a beer, correct if i'm wrong.

I do love Peterman Artois however, Coors is also very nice

Believe me, there were a lot of other choices I had to leave off.

Sorry "non-alcoholic" beverages all got the axe, I really am.

I like to taste new beers/ales/whatever as often as possible, but those on the list I regularly drink and enjoy are: Newcastle Brown Ale, Guiness, Hoegaarden and Chimay.

Then there are Samuel Adams Honey Porter and Boston Ale, Fuller's Discovery and Wells Bombardier, Brakspear's Oxford Gold...

I like it.

Throw in some Czechs as well - Staropramen, Pilsner Urquell

Chimay is probably my favorite beer, but Leffe, Grimbergen, Scaldis, Tripel Carmelite, Floreffe, Mort Subite and De Verboden Vrucht really come close.
 
Guess I'm a sucker for Belgium, uh? Still trying to get my hands on one of these:
 
 
Other favorites include:
 
Carlsberg from Denmark
Sagres from Portugal
Sagres Bohemia from Portugal
Cobra from India
Erdinger from Bavaria
Franziskaner from Bavaria
Guiness from Ireland
Kilkenny from Ireland
Murphy's from Ireland
Alexander Keith's from Canada
Kokanee from Canada
Bigger on the inside.

What? No Heineken? Shocked
 
Oh well... I guess I'll cast my vote for that great beer brewed in my home state.
 
 
There are some excellent brews on this list, especially Newcastle, Bass, Stella, and Chimay.

Being Italian, I am more of a wine drinker (and a very moderate one at that, though I love good wine), but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy good beer. The Belgians know what they're about, and my absolute favourite of their creations is the cherry-flavoured kriek (made with REAL cherries). BlissHeart!
